  1. It has a few minor flaws, but the overwhelming amount of fun this game offers more than makes up for it.
  2. 90
    If you're looking for a lengthy (as in 100+ hours) RPG that blends quick and dirty gameplay with heaping plates of detail and sophisticated character development, no one else comes close to this series.
  3. If you have ever played "Diablo," "Dungeon Siege," or "Baulders Gate," than this game will become second home to you. The game has a very similar pace, but it does have a different flare to it by some of the gameplay additions such as solving puzzles and sneaking around.
  4. 80
    If the game balance had matched the creativity and attention to overall design put into this title, I would probably have given it a 90, because the detail of construction and depth of the environment are truly excellent.
  5. Good stuff for RPG fans everywhere, though a bit too difficult and time-consuming for the casual gamer.
  6. It promises many hours of addictive adventuring, all with a tone that succeeds at being self-consciously humorous in the face of some fairly conventional fantasy trappings.
  7. The puzzles are also annoyingly addictive.

    If you're an RPG junkie, Beyond Divinity is definitely worth your time and money. Just don't expect to extract any extra gameplay hours out of the random dungeon generator - it's just not going to happen. [July 2004, p.64]
  9. If you’re feeling patient and want a massive adventure then BD is worth a look. If you have "Sacred" in your library, keep playing till you get to level 50 and then see how you feel.

    This is the most disappointing rpg title i have ever had the opportunity to play. Amongst the numerous reasons for this, is its lack of plot, This is the most disappointing rpg title i have ever had the opportunity to play. Amongst the numerous reasons for this, is its lack of plot, infuriating battlefields with limitless foes and no big bad guy, a must in my opinion, and frustrating interface. It is absolutely no comparison to the epic boiware rpgs, so if that is what youre looking for don't pursue beyond divinity. Full Review »
